    Young-sup has a natural talent for handling kites, just as his brother Kee-sup has a talent for making them. It is 1473, and the ruler of Korea just happens to be a boy-king who is as enthusiastic about kite flying as the two brothers. Kee-sup is charged with making a kite worthy of a king. The king would like to compete in the New Year's kite festival, but he knows it would inhibit the other contestants so he asks Young-sup to fly in his place. With so much at stake, can Young-sup, who has never competed, beat the reigning champion? ~ Anh

    Sixteen year-old Peggy Grahame has no idea what to expect when her dying father sends her back to upstate New York to live with his brother Enos. Because the brothers have been estranged for so long, all Peggy knows is that Enos lives in the family's ancestral estate, Rest-and-be-Thankful, built when the first Grahames came over from Scotland in the 1700's. On her way to Rest-and-be-Thankful, Peggy runs into Pat Thorne, a scholar who is trying to investigate his own ancestors who were active in the Revolutionary War. Both are puzzled when Uncle Enos refuses to talk to Pat, and sends him away, forbidding him to come back or ever speak to Peggy again. As Uncle Enos is apparently too busy to spend time with Peggy, she spends her days alone in the library or wandering the grounds. When the very sociable family ghosts (recognizable from the huge oil paintings around the house) start appearing and telling their stories of the Revolutionary War times, she is drawn into their stories, the mystery of Pat's relatives, and her uncle's strange behavior and resolves to get to the bottom of it all. A blend of historical fiction, mystery and suspense, this is an absorbing story that would also make a great read-aloud. 266 pgs, pb. – Jess

    The Silmarillion is the precursor to the Lord of the Rings series. The intricate world of Middle Earth, partially told by Tolkien in his series, is all laid out here. The book begins with the creation of Middle-Earth, and ends just before the War of the Rings. While his writing style is evident, be warned that it is not as polished as Lord of the Rings (due to the fact that he never finished it), and uses a bit more antiquated language, making for a tougher read. While the other books focus on the strife between the Free Peoples and Sauron (with men taking a substantial part in the war), the Silmarillion tells the tale of the Elves, the strife amongst themselves and against Melkor. It tells of their birth, their travels to the undying lands, and their return to Middle Earth to regain the Silmarils, which was stolen by Melkor in his treachery. Though there is a more pervading sense of sadness than in the other Lord of the Rings books, especially due to the Elves' proud nature, the book is well worth reading both for the background to the other books and for its own sake. 480 pgs, pb. ~ Mark

    Beginning readers will appreciate this dictionary written just for them! This reference contains over 2000 age-appropriate vocabulary words. The book begins with an introductory section that teaches kids how to use the dictionary. Then it proceeds to the entries. The print size is large and easy to read, with about five entries per page. Guidewords appear at the top of each page, and entry words are in purple so they're easy to find. The definitions are complete sentences (ie. "A shed is a small building used to store things."), and sample sentences show how words are used in context. Full color captioned photos enhance the text and hold kids' interest. Some entries have feature notes which show sound-alikes, opposites, rhyming words, or related words. Different meanings of the same word are clearly distinguished, and irregular verb forms and noun plurals are listed at the end of each entry (when applicable). The bottom of each page has an alphabet border to reinforce "ABC order" skills. An appendix provides brief reviews of phonics and spelling concepts, plus commonly used word lists. 400+ pages, hc. ~ Lisa

    Introduce children to Roman numerals with this fun counting book. Each numeral is introduced, and then children count the pigs in the accompanying picture to find out the value of the numeral. This continues for 100, 200, 300, and even 1,000 - if you care to count all those pigs (I confess, I had to just out of curiosity, although I didn't count the M page, as I couldn't tell if it held just one thousand pigs, or even MM or MMM pigs - even I'm not THAT curious). The text gives tips on how to read numerals, and when to add and subtract them to get the right number. At the end of the book, several pages offer a number (in Roman numerals, of course) of objects in a picture. Children can find and count these objects for additional practice. A very cute way to learn the Roman numerals. - Melissa

    If you don't read this "prequel" to the Lord of the Rings trilogy you miss a lot of the little details throughout the adventures of Frodo and the fellowship of the ring. Without Bilbo's adventure, Frodo's never would have happened. This unabridged edition is 8" x 10" in size and has forty-eight, full-color, full-page, fantasy-style illustrations – including five lavish two-page spreads by artist Michael Hague. The illustrations alone make this a great book for younger readers, but the larger print also helps! Read along and let your imagination run wild as you join Bilbo on the first adventure that led to so many others! Pb, 290 pgs. – elise
